LONDON — A U.S. diplomat’s wife accused of killing 19-year-old motorcyclist Harry Dunn while driving on the wrong side of a road in England has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, authorities said Friday.
Anne Sacoolas, 42, flew back to the United States three weeks after the crash in August near RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire. The State Department has said Sacoolas is covered by diplomatic immunity and cannot be extradited.
The Crown Prosecution Service, which handles criminal cases in the United Kingdom, confirmed the charge Friday and said it had started an extradition process in order for her to return to the country and appear in court.
